Cybersecurity and Privacy Advisory Committee (CPAC)

The Cybersecurity and Privacy Advisory Committee (CPAC) is a public-private partnership dedicated to built-in cybersecurity and privacy best practices and considerations in Smart Secure Cities and Communities.

Smart Secure Cities and Communities unleash tremendous potential built on the power of data and technology. With great power comes great responsibility. Well designed and executed, municipalities and citizens will harvest marvelous benefits such as less traffic congestion, faster emergency services, and safer environments. Inadequately designed and executed, however, municipalities and citizens may subject themselves to undesirable consequences such as loss of privacy, data breaches, financial loss and disruption to their work and even lives.

Formed in March 2018, CPAC consists of cybersecurity and privacy professionals and practitioners from governments, nonprofits and private businesses. CPAC achieves its goal by 1) helping SuperClusters build cybersecurity and privacy best practices and considerations in their blueprints; 2) providing one-size-does-not-fit-all methodologies to enable SuperClusters and municipalities to comply with laws and standards pertinent to them. To ensure timely, tailored and consistent support, CPAC embeds champions in SuperClusters' leadership teams and invite SuperClusters' leaders into CPAC leadership to guide its direction and priorities. Membership is open to all communities, private sector enterprises, non-governmental organizations, and government agencies (at all levels).
